Lee's Chinese restaurant is another zombie. They were supposed to relocate a block north from their current University Heights location a year ago. The signage is in place but they haven't pulled the trigger.

Any additional charge on the lease for the asbestos bonus?

Edit: Oops thought that the Douglas Street location was a Dollar Giant.

Google Earth suggests it was a Dollar Tree.

Maybe they are one in the same.  :confused:

 

Edit: I guess they are the same.

Dollar Tree bought Dollar Giant in 2010. The conversion of the Douglas Street store happened around 2013.

does anyone know when Virtuous Pie is opening?  We are hosting a pizza party 40th birthday party in late August for our nephew,  and we have gluten-free and vegan

in-laws. I was counting on them being open in time!  I did email them a few hours ago but no reply yet....

They haven’t started any Contruction yet. Not likely to be ready for you...

Same with Shipwrecked Bistro on Douglas, which has had signs on the windows for a long time, yet is still unopened.


Walked by the other day. There’s repossession notices on the door of shipwrecked and the dispensary next door.

Right, those two are now out as is Dollar Tree. Terrible image for that block.

Funny, Leaf (the guy who owns Shipwreck) just rebranded his stores as Platinum cannabis or something like that. Wonder what he’s up to?
